#069: Help! I Married An Entrepreneur, Part 1 [Podcast]

My wife, Gail, often travels with me when I speak at various events. Inevitably, she is asked, “How do you live with a entrepreneur?”

In fact, two literary agents have encouraged her to write a book on this topic. So I sat down and interviewed her about this very topic. It was lot of fun. So much so, that we decided to make this a three-part series.

This week, we focused on what you need to do if you are married to an entrepreneur. This also applies to those who are married to corporate executives, ministry leaders, or any other kind of “Type A” personality.

Next week, we will focus on what you need to do if you are the entrepreneur—and keep from blowing up your marriage.

Finally, in week 3, we are planning to take questions from my listeners. So if you have one, please scroll down to the voicemail widget below and leave your question.

If you are married entrepreneur, you can help them (and yourself) by giving them five gifts:

  1. The gift of belief
  2. The gift of appreciation
  3. The gift of affirmation
  4. The gift of perspective
  5. The gift of commitment

    This is not as complicated as it sounds. In fact, I have put together a step-by-step screencast on exactly how to do it.

    You don’t need any technical knowledge.By the way, I just updated this screencast a few weeks ago, so it has the latest and greatest information available. I walk you through the entire process in exactly 20 minutes.

    This is a terrific way to cross-promote your blog or website, because I will link to it, just like I did with the callers in this episode.
